LITTER TAETCXQ THE DISTEICT

alblllljr ef District Coeveatleas
la Aaaesard by Clabe ef
At the recent meeting of the executive
committee of the Nebraska Federation of
Women' club held at Lincoln on of tba
point moit strongly emphasised In the
plana for strengthening' the district - or
ganisation waa the duty of the amallrr
town to entertain the district 'meetings
and not impose too much upon the larger
towns. It was pointed out that a the
larger town must bear the responsibility
of entertaining the state convention they
should not be expected to entertain the
district meeting a well. In some of the
district the disposition haa been to expect
too much of the larger club and town,
the excuse being that with strong organi
sation and good place of meeting the tax
la not aa great a In the smaller town:
also that a larger attendance 1 Insured
' by meeting In the larger places, a the
women will combine business with pleasure
and embrace the opportunity for doing
their shopping a well a attending the
meeting. Unquestionably this Is an ad
vantage from the standpoint of the Indi
vidual, but not from that of the federa
tion. ' ,
The whole matter I well summed up In
the argument of on of the district Vice
presidents: "The small towns need the dis
trict meetings and they mean little and
sometime nothing to the larger town."
To begin with, the clubs of the larger
town are too frequently heavily taxed
with demand of their own Immediate com
munltle that call for the expenditure of
time, strength and money. 'While It sel
dom occur that the big otubs are not
glad to entertain the district meeting It la
a fact that this meeting 1 only another
tax that brings comparatively little re
turn. The program, good though it may
be, afford little that' the. women of the
larger towns have not many other oppor
tunities , of , hearing while the men that
element so desirable to- reaohnever com
out. Then, too, the opportunity for shop
ping Is difficult for most women to resist
and proves distracting If not monopolising.
On the other hand, tha district conven.
tlon or any other meeting Of Us character
Is alwaya an Inspiration to. a smaller com
munity. Bringing as It doe speakers upon
' ' subjects of Interest to all, It program
' attract the men aa well aa the women and
so attain their fullest educational useful
neaa. A dlntrict convention Is one of tho
best thing known to revive a declining
club In a small town and It frequently ex
tends lts Inspiration to adjoining towns.
There Is alwaya more aoctabillty; there is
- always closer touch with results that ex
tend to the whole district.
Legal Majority for Women.
The California Federation . of Women'
club 1 working to have the age of legal
majority made the same for women as for
men. At present a girl become of age at
IS years, while the boy la a minor until
be is 21. The Injustice as well as the
danger of this plan haa been brought to
th attention of the women by Secretary
Gate of the atate Department of Charities
and Correction', . He hka urged the need of
protecting girl : between 18 and., ti. which
' period, he asserts. Is the most dangerous in
their life.. "Released from the authority of
parents or guardian while notyyet able to
stand alone," he said, "trusting the world
because Ignorant of its ways, our girls are
too often"-the easy victim of unscrupulous
men, especially when they have property.
One curious way In 'which the present law
often works against women Is that a man's
Insurance policy Is usually made out to his
minor children. In this way the son who
may be nearly 21 gets the benefit of his
father's Insurance money, while the daugh
ter who lo younger than he but has passed
the age of majority, has no claim upon any
share of It."
Thia matter Is also receiving the atten-u
tion of club and federations ef other
state, especially those that have taken
active Interest In Juvenile legislation. In
attaining her legal majority at IS, the way
ward girl has afforded a serious problem
to those who are trying to help her, for
being released from authority at IS, when
still incompetent to Judge for herself, she
too frequently drift back to her unwhole
some environment and Influence ' from
which abe cannot b restrained.

COMMENT ON HYDRANT CASE
Water Board Attorney Kay Raise New
Js at Betrial.
CASE DECISIVE, SAYS HALL
Attorney for Wafer Company
clare Opinion Is Conclusive
All Material Point Raised
Attorney for the Water board were not
ready to discuss the opinion In the hydrant
rentals 'case Saturday morning, both John
It. Webster and C. C. Wright pleading they
had not familiarised themselves with It
sufficient to comment upon it.
'I cannot tell yet Just what wo will do,"
said Mr. Wright. "Of course, the case
will have to be tried again In this court
and at the new trial we may raise aome
new Issues not raised In the former trial.
I am not familiar with the Opinion and do
not know Just how conclusive It Is. We
will take the matter up and decide our
course some time before' the case comes
up for retrial next spring."
"I have not aeen the opinion yet," aaid
John L. Webster, "and I cannot comment
upon It until I have given It careful con
alderatlon. Just now I am - working on
the case relating to the '.purchase of the
plant and I will not give much attention
t this case until the other " one 1 dis
posed of." .
R. Beecher Howell of the. Water board
said he had hot seen the decision Satur
day morning and had no comment to make
upon It. He said while It waa a matter
largely for the attorneys, the water board
woud probably discuss It at lta next meet
Hall ntDpaaseV Decision .
R. B. Hall, attorney for the water com
pany, In commenting upon the case, said:
"The opinion of the circuit court of ap
peals on the hydrant rental case Is decisive
of the matters In controversy. It, In ef
fect, settles that the city shall pay tha
hydrant rental and Interest at 7 per cent
from the time of default. This will be In
terest on several hundred thousand dollars.
as there are suit and bills due for that
large an amount, and In a very short time
a new suit will be commenced for the hy
drant rentals which fall due on January L
'The opinion,-however strong It may be
on the matter In controversy, is even more
suggestive In respect to matters which the
court speak about than that which they de
nize; for Jnstance, the court, on page (
lays special emphasis and italicizes the fact
that th city by the act of 1908 specifically
procured the legislature to deprive It of
th right to pay ' It debts by repealing
every provision of law for the levy and
collection of taxea for hydrant rentals.
This emphasis can have but one meaning.
The court, however, did not find It neces
sary to pass upon the question, aa It waa
settled by other matters which It did do-clde.
"One matter decided tn the opinion and
of special Importance In elation to the
attitude of the Water board In It suit
with the city, 1 given In this language:
"A municipal 'corporation. In respect of
Its purely business relations as distin
guished from those that are governmental,
Is held to the same standard of just deal
ing that the law exacts of private Indi
viduals." "Under that rule the city, like any other
parson. Is obliged to pay f or the water
which It receives and tor the service which
the water company render. The hydrant
rental case, of course, will be pushed to
a hearing at aa early date as practicable
and tho city will pay - Interest on t
amount at 7 per cent until It Is paid. The
amount which will be due. Including that
which falls due on the first day of Jan
uary, Is $380,000."
